TwoDays300In a blue-collar city in Belgium, Sandra, a working mother, returns to her job after a medical leave only to find that the company has offered her co-workers a bonus if she is laid off; if they refuse, she can keep her job.  Sandra is given a weekend to persuade her colleagues to make a large sacrifice on her behalf. A bleakly beautiful meditation on the waning of solidarity in the modern economy. 2014, Belgium/France/Italy, 95 minutes, in French, Arabic and English, rated PG-13

Academy Award Nominee: Marion Cotillard, for Best Actress.

“Ms. Cotillard’s performance is as fine a piece of screen acting as you will ever see.” – A. O. Scott, The New York Times

Two Days, One Night is a huge deal in the scope of its concerns, and in the stunning simplicity with which it turns social and moral abstractions into heart-stopping human drama.” – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

“As a testament to connection, service, sacrifice and self-worth, it’s a soaring, heart-rending hymn.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

“This is a small, compassionate gem of a movie, one that’s rooted in details of people and place but that keeps opening up onto the universal” – Ty Burr, Boston Globe

“That Two Days, One Night retains such an organic sensibility, even with a major star in the lead, is credit to both filmmakers and actress.” – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times

“A tense dramatic situation and a subtly magnificent central performance from Marion Cotillard add up to an outstanding new movie from the Dardenne brothers” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
